Measure your window from the top of the windowsill to the bottom. Then, add any additional measurements based on rod placement for a rough window length. Later, you’ll need to tweak this measurement as you determine curtain type. For example, say the length of the window is 40 inches (100 cm).
How to choose the right length for curtains?

What size curtain rod do I need for a 30 inch window?
After you measure the width of the window, add 3 inches (7.6 cm) to both sides. This will give you a general sense of the length of the rod you need if you’re keeping it just above the curtains, which is the most common style. For example, say your window’s width was 30 inches (76 cm). Add 6 inches (15 cm) to get the rod size of 36 inches (91 cm).
